A poll conducted by YouGov on behalf of CBS gave Biden's latest speech an 85 percent approval rating. The problem is that they only included 169 Republicans out of 1000 people surveyed.

Five hundred ten Democrats were polled, along with 235 people who identified as "independent," who also tend to go along with the left on many issues. Besides the 169 Republicans, another three percent didn't identify with any party affiliation.

According to Raheem Kassam of the National Pulse,  "The full poll details reveal that CBS actually spoke with 10,420 U.S. adults and then whittled the sample size down to just 943."

"In other words, YouGov and CBS stacked their sample with leftists in order to create the result they wanted," continued Kassam.

"While the full cross-tabs have not been published, it is a safe assumption that these Democrat + Independent numbers add up to 79 percent of those polled, and this represents 93 percent of the 85 percent approval rate."

"Most viewers who tuned in to watch President Biden’s speech liked what they heard and came away feeling optimistic about America," said CBS on its website, neglecting to mention how they deliberately skewed the sample so that it would favor Biden.

This isn't the first time a poll has been biased on purpose, but the extent to which CBS has gone to try to pull the wool over people's eyes is unprecedented, according to Kassam.
